“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” (George Eliot).

Nicole Starleigh lives in coastal Virginia with her husband, two sons, and five fur babies, writing women’s fiction and dabbling in sweet romance. She adores quiet retreats in the mountains, chewy fudge brownies, charming small towns, and hazelnut coffee. A believer that happily-ever-after exists outside of fairytales, Nicole loves to see everyday women become the heroes of their own stories – in real life and fiction.

Nicole is a member of Sigma Tau Delta (International English Honor Society) and James River Writers and holds a BA in English and Creative Writing – Fiction and an MFA in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University. Between working as an assistant manager of ride operations at her regional theme park and chasing plot bunnies on her days off, you can find her penning Supernatural fan fiction on Wattpad and follow her on Instagram. Chasing Ours is her first novel.
